to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view p

of our remarkable brain. this evening the topic covers the public policy implications of the new science of mind. our understanding of the brain's complex function as a direct impact on our fundamental notions about how we live it affects our views on justice, personal accountability and decision-making. in the state of the union address president obama cited brain research as an example of how the government should invest in the best ideas. >> we also have to invest in the best ideas. every dollar we invested to map the human genome returned 140 dollars to our economy. every dollar. today our scientists are mapping the human brain to unlock the answers to alzheimer. they're developing drugs to regenerate damaged organs. devising new materials to make batteries 10 times more powerful. now is not the time to gut these job creating investments in science and innovation. now is the time to reach a level of research and development not seen since the height of the space race. >> rose: the obama administration is planning a decade-long effort to build a comprehensive map of the brain's activi

and the rest blue gums. from there, hort science gave us the recommendation to remove a number of the trees. it's worth noting that monterey pines were the largest group and two reasons for this. first monterey pines in golden gate park are what hort science refers to as largely overmature in development, which means that they are really old. which renders the tree for susceptible to inspects, the red beetle, et cetera. overall hort science found our urban forest to be relatively healthy an only recommending a very small number of trees to be removed. because nobody likes to see one of our big, beautiful, majestic trees removed, but after expensive study these were deem to be at-risk of failure. so i thought some context would be helpful. >> there was no public comment and with that we'll entertain a motion. >> so moved. >> moved and seconded. all those in favor? >> a. >> so moved. >> we are now on item 10, park maintenance standards report. >> good morning commissioners, general manager ginsburg. my name is steve rockwell a senior administrative analyst in operations and i have the priv

in between. climate science is probably one of the most extraordinarily complex areas of scientific study that anyone can undertake. the variables are numerous. many of the variables are measurable and we can replicate models. many of the variables we cannot measure them. we cannot model them but we know they're part of the climate system. so the models are extra-- extraordinarily complicated. and so therefore how certain dow feel about the competent sense-- competency of the model and its ability to predict the future. and it's my view that the models have become increasingly more competent because of high speed computing capabilities and just more sophisticated mathematical modelling, and more data to inform the model. but at the end of it there are still a range of uncertain outcomes around these models. and every scientist i know agrees there's a range of uncertainty. and if you read that pc-- they talk about these ranges of uncertainty. >> but there is no -- no great difference of opinion on the impact of co2 emission into the atmosphere? >> there is, in terms of the impact -- >> of

unhelpful concept and i think that you have to ask the question from the legal system and from the science perspective as to what free will might mean. on the science side, the question really is, and this is what we were debating, is the question whether you can operationally define free will so you can measure it? from a scientist's standpoint, a construct doesn't really mean anything if you can't measure it. i have been asked many, many newer scientists including ken, what exactly does free will mean and how do you measure it? it could be like emotional control. it could be something like impulsivity, impulse control and you get back to the basic problem that chris who is a colleague of anita's at vanderbilt, wait he has put it, how do you distinguish and irresistible impulse from an impulse not resisted. there is a basic gray area, a difficult ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competen

of a baby cured of hiv. health and science editor john fowler reports now from san francisco on who may be helped. >> right now many thousands of adults and some children use a three-drug regimen that is taken every day makes hiv disappear. >> it happened to me so i'm on it and i have since 94. >> but you continue to take the drugs. >> of course. like clockwork. >> at this mississippi hospital, a doctor administered large doses to a child born with hiv, and two years later, without anymore doses, she's been cured. >> they don't really know yet why the drugs worked so much more effectively this time, but it wasn't anything new. possibly using more of the drugs sooner. >> at san francisco's mission neighborhood health center, hof mavn directs hiv services. because of community clinics, health officials tell me it's been nine years since the last hiv-positive baby was born in san francisco, about a hun a year nationwide, but in developing countries, 2 million children have hiv. >> this may be something that we can cure. this might be applicable only to this population, but it really is a g

was of the work that he did bring science to how we organize. that's actually changed the nation. that's the impact that fred roth senior has had on the world and i just want to all be here in your presence. thank you. (applause) >> thank you. i don't want to repeat what's been said. but, you know, i was meeting with dolores huerta just a couple days ago and i was really surprised that someone like her would be supporting our effort to add harvey milk's name to the airport. (applause) >> what she talked to me about was how she learned about the enter connection of every human being and that every cause for justice and equality is one that concerns all of us regardless of where you come from and where you are. * and i think that's the lesson, that people like dolores learned from your father. not only did he influence leaders like dolores and cesar chavez, but to this day, after years of his passing, influencing so many generations, it's really a legacy that will last forever. and just very grateful that i have benefited from it. thank you. (applause) >> we just wanted to take a quick p

for the thing of the day. it's the science triumph of the day. someone has finally been cured of h.i.v. entirely with drugs. two years ago a baby was started on an anti-retro viral therapy within 30 hours of being born with h.i.v. and as of now the infection seems to have cleared up and is indetectible. the doctors will continue to follow the child but for now here is a message to all you climate-change skeptics and evolution deniers yay science. it was nearly four years ago that president obama laid out his vision for a world free from nuclear weapons before audience in prague. >> today i state clearly with the conviction america's commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. it will take patience and persistence. but now we too must ignore the voices who tell us that the world cannot change. we have to insist, yes we can. >> john: to be sure president obama's pledge was historic. it signaled the virtual reversal in policy from his predecessor whose doctrine advocated for expansion of the america's nuclear arsenal, and banished the word's disarmament from its vo
